Discovering Terpenes: Myrcene

By Jake Schaefer October 29, 2020

In the last few years, cannabinoids like CBD and THC have taken the world by storm, and considering all the potential benefits they can offer, it really comes as no surprise. What might surprise you though is the fact that there is another entirely different collection of compounds in the cannabis plant that could offer their own unique set of benefits. Terpenes are the source of a plant's aromas and, when smoked, provide a litany of flavors as well. Ask any cannabis enthusiast their favorite strain and you’re more than likely to get a description of both these features. Ask them to pick out a new strain to try, and they’ll probably smell the options more than look at them. So why do we put so much stock into something so simple as smell when it comes to hemp or marijuana products? The simple answer is that the terpenes can make just as big of a difference as the cannabinoid content, and provide additional or synergistic benefits of their own. The most commonly found terpene in commercial cannabis plants, and their derived products, is called myrcene.

The myrcene terpene is often credited with having a few different uses. The first and most commonly sought after effect is simple calm and relaxation, often to aid with sleep. Many people already use myrcene in this way without even realizing it! Lemongrass, a common choice for nighttime teas, is another plant which contains high amounts of myrcene. Knowing this, it comes as no surprise that most of our customers who look to our products for sleep management often end up finding success with a product containing our myrcene-rich terpene blend. The second most common usage for myrcene is to help reduce inflammation. Another very prevalent usage of CBD products in general, the potential of myrcene’s effect on inflammation make it a perfect partner with CBD for anyone looking to reduce pain from swelling joints or otherwise. Though it is important to keep in mind that clinical trials to determine exactly how mercene effects the human body are still sparse, it is hard to ignore the quantity of anecdotal success people are regularly finding through this terpene.

If you’re looking for a product that contains myrcene, Discover offers a huge selection of broad and full spectrum products which contain at least a small amount of the compound. Broad spectrum and full spectrum refer to the hemp extract that is in any particular product. With these full plant extracts, all the terpenes, amino acids, flavonoids, and cannabinoids will be present (except the THC which is removed from our broad spectrum extract). This means that all of our broad and full spectrum products will contain at least trace amounts of myrcene in them. However, if you’re looking for something extra myrcene-rich, there are a few options we offer with higher concentrations of terpenes. The Shatter and Terps concentrate is my personal favorite, a full gram of CBD with added terpenes, myrcene being the most prominent. The shatter is primarily used by vaping the concentrate directly, but it can also be ground down and infused into an oil or topical base with very little effort. Another vape option is our Active Distillate Cartridge. Similar to the shatter, it is a pure CBD distillate with the same added terpenes for flavor and their own benefits. The cartridges are a great choice for someone looking for a product that is easy to use and has a high concentration of myrcene. For those who are looking to try myrcene but do not want to vape or make their own oil from scratch, remember that our broad and full spectrum tinctures also contain our terpene blend in only slightly lower quantities. So why wait? Make your way to your local Discover CBD or visit our product pages to find out how CBD and myrcene can make a difference in your life!
